Easter eggs delivered to vulnerable children following Nottinghamshire’s annual egg run

Posted on 27 March 2024

On Sunday 24 March, over 700 motorcyclists across the county took part in Nottingham’s 43rd Easter Egg Run.

The bikers started at the Forest Recreation Ground and made their way to Mansfield Fire Station – to enter, all we asked is that they donate a minimum of one Easter egg.

All bikers arrived at Mansfield safely and were offered safety information and a chance to sign up to our Biker Down Courses. There was also an opportunity to look around Mansfield’s Fire Museum and get involved with other fundraising activities, which raised £585.52 and goes towards children’s charities and other events such as providing day trips for vulnerable children.

In total, 2,363 Easter eggs were donated, and these have now been distributed to children’s homes, centres, and hospital wards in the hope to bring happiness to youngsters around Nottinghamshire this Easter.

Tim Marston, our Fire Investigation Dog Handler, is the lead organiser of the egg run, and dedicates a huge amount of time to make sure the event is more successful every single year.

Tim said: “The bikers that take part have an exceptional amount of generosity and it is great to see the event go from strength-to-strength year on year. 

“Being able to provide Easter eggs to children who wouldn’t receive any is an amazing feeling, however it is more than just about the chocolate – it is the thought and the sentiment that comes with it.

“Along with other volunteers, I have now distributed the eggs and every single recipient has been overwhelmed with the kindness of the bikers, and all those involved.

“I would like to thank everyone who was involved with the event – it’s just another example of how we can make a difference to the communities we serve around Nottinghamshire!”
